they tell about barack obama is well he's always bad things. if you're trying to figure out well what is it that -- what's the strategy here? how are we trying to win this race? it's more difficult on their side. that's why they're so inefficient with their money. spending is a wreck. message is all over the place. that's why they're not having as big an impact and people thought they would. >> don't miss the unique take on politics and all the top stories on the rachel madow show at 9:00 eastern, the place for politics. >>> here's your "first look" at the other news going on around today. in utah, a dramatic rescue for a young deer that got trapped in a man hole earlier this week. poor guy. officers used a climbing rope to lasso the spooked animal and hoist it to safety. the deer was then released back into the wild. >>> all right. beer drinkers may want to turn away for a moment. cases and cases of beer went flying on to a colorado highway from an overturned semi that took a turn too quickly. the stretch of highway was closed for three hours while crews cleaned up the big mess and s

plan, obama said look, this is time and time again here is mitt romney saying he's going to do all these things and he won't tell you what his secret plans are. why is he keeping them a secret? is it because they're so good for the middle class. if they really were great tax plans that weren't going to hit the middle class, he could say how it's not going to hurt the middle class. he could say how he's going to regulate wall street and deal with pre-existing conditions. you're seeing fact checkers today and you'll see the obama campaign hammering things home like the preconditioned issue where romney doesn't have anything dealing with people who have cancer and are uninsurable today. the overall romney campaign is saying well, you know, we'll figure out a way for the states to deal with that issue. that's not necessarily a solution today for millions of people who have very serious health problems. that's going to be something that obama didn't really attack yesterday. i think you're going to see a much more vigorous obama in the future. >> in the second and third debate? >> his pe
's an ark of a story that you try to tell. so on our side, you watch what the obama campaign is doing. you watch what we're doing. there's an ark to mitt romney's story. he started in his business career as a guy who, you know, bought companies, fired workers, made millions of dollars. went to become the governor of massachusetts. didn't do a great job. and here's what we wants to do for the country. on the republican side, the story that they tell about mitt romney is there is no story about mitt romney. there's one ad about the olympics over the course of the summer. the story they tell about barack obama is, well, he's all these bad things. and so if you're trying to figure out, well, what is it that, what's the strategy here? that you were watching tv? >> right, you absolutely could. you knows the truth is there is an arc of a story that you try to tell. there is an art to the story. he's a guy who has bought companies, fired workers, didn't do a great job and here is what he wants to do to for the country. on the republican side, there is no story about mitt romney. and the story they
obama the country has come to know and trust, he is going to do a great job. >> i tell him that, you know what, sweetie, you had five boys, you learned to argue really well and make your points years ago. just go with that. >> so of course that was first lady michelle obama and ann romney offering or telling us the advice they offered up to their husbands before tonight's big debate. so, here is quick look at the format, just to catch you up to speed early. president obama won the coin toss and will be introduced first there are no opening statements, the first will answer the first question. the 90-minute debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments on domestic policy, three on the economy and one each on health care, the role of government and governing. closing statements, governor romney won a coin toss and chose to go last, wrapping up the debate. each candidate will have two minutes. as for questions for each candidate, politico's james hoeman, he has his advice for them and joins us live from the debate site in denver. james, thanks for your time. >> good to see you, tam
romney was telling all these lies, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put
floats your boat. on a day when many stocks were buoyed by mitt romney's victory over president obama, let me tell you how i watched. i watched the debate within the parlance of my world, the stock world. i watched it with an eye towards making you some money. tweeting every potential stock idea triggered by either gentleman. ♪ how can you try to make money from the debate? let me parse it for you. show you how it's done. going over the actual statements by each candidate translating them into cramerican. let me tell you, there were tons of cramericans on twitter. if you tweeted me about the debate, keep an eye on the twicker running below. you may see your tweet. romney went right into a call for north american energy self-sufficiently, singling out coal as an endangered species under obama. listen. >> i like coal. i want to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. >> lots of bozos went in and bought the coal stocks. all the coal stocks on. this wrong take away, people! coal's hostage to chinese deman
. this is that i mean will you pinheaded college professors. you can't tell me a guy as smart as barack obama didn't remember the biggest gaffe that his opponent had. come on. that takes 32 seconds to figure that out gee, i should bring this up. why didn't he do it? >> every incumbent president has a bad first debate. >> bill: it's like ford saying that the soviet union isn't dominating eastern europe? brain freeze? >> even ronald reagan had a terrible first debate in 1984. i think it's inexplicable. it's inexcusable. >> bill: maybe it's brain freeze. that happens sometimes. >> rick perry. >> bill: that's right. governor perry couldn't remember what agencies he wanted to close down but he knew he wanted to close them. when we come right back, megyn kelly with behind the scenes stuff after the debate last night. kelly is next. >> bill: thanks for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly. in the kelly file segment tonight, kelly was out in denver with bret baier coverage the debate. ratings say about 58 million people tuned into all concerns. however, fox news may have won the ratings race hoping those pi
for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the president chose to put forth his plan last night and that's what spent his time on. but certainly there were unanswered lies. >> newt gingrich, you've heard the allegations. apparently barack obama is facing the same problem you faced, is that mitt romney was just telling loads of lies and you can't do anything about it. >> first of all, it's a great honor to have governor granholm quote me and maybe one of the few times she ever does. but it was a very nice thing for her to do. i think what was intriguing, she actually raised a point that i was talking with my friends about today. i get the sense that obama never watched the debates that romney and i had, particularly in florida. even though both my wife and i have said publicly over the last couple weeks if romney arrives as tough, as aggressive with the clarity and the assertiveness he used in florida, we
. also mr. obama did not look to the future. he did not tell americans how he is going to improve the economy. while governor romney said flat out that he wants to put more american dollars into the marketplace by cutting taxes. even if you disagree with that at least it's a strategy. mr. obama no strategy other than staying the course which is a disaster. that's why mitt romney won. reaction to to the debate was fascinating. our pal al gore blamed the president's weak performance on the altitude in denver. >> i'm going to say something controversial here. obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet. >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust. >> that's interesting. >> i don't know. >> bill: was mr. gore high when he said that. some obama supporters simply declared victory. >> i think the president won on poise, won on grace. he won on substance. mitt romney came to play hard ball. it showed mitt romney was on the att offensive. at the same time he didn't really
that the governor may call obama out by not telling the truth. is that a wise strategy? >> the campaign isn't about truths. obama has a huge advantage. the facts of what's happening in america, chris christie was on here earlier, the facts of what's happening in america, the reduction of the america standing in the world, the reduction of middle class prosperity in the world. the idea that health care costs are going up, health care premiums are going up. the federal reserve board, for the first time in its 100-history, said that the economy is so bad, obama's policies are so bad, that they'll have the job creation, unprecedented job creation program. nobody said, what does that mean? the own federal reserve board has given up on his program. >> in the course of these debate if truth is on trial, if you look at all of the ads that have been run and said, both sides have a real incapacity to tell the truth to americans. both sides are unwilling to say we'll have to do a share of sacrifice. we'll have to basically, we'll -- taxes have to be included and expenditures have to be included. romney puts p
ryan hammered the obama administration on the economy. >>> did not want to tell you that the not for medicare that there for a thing called life called doctor care. >>> as a result of the most predictable economic crisis in our history and not extended a credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. >>> mean while their home in their debate technique and a lot of practice sessions. that i'm getting a lot of help from the ohio senator the plays president obama and the president's preparations the massachusetts senator kerrey is standing in for mitt romney. >>> concerns about pollution and prompting a spare the air day call in the bay area. >>> a heat wave is upon us with air quality officials in and commit unhealthy for a second day in a row. people and fast to cut their driving to out the day and try to avoid outdoor activities during the hottest part of the afternoon. it coincides with some triple digit temperatures and wind. more on the warm up. >>> a quick look at how woman's blouse to get in the bay area near 100 degrees isn't even as the c
before doing the tease. >>> tell obama off and they scoff. i speak of lefty professors, is there any other kind? a student group at sam houston state university, go fighting irish, put up a free speech wall. but someone had to ruin it by writing f-obama which irked a member of the faculty. let's let mor dwan freeman -- mor dwan freeman explain. >> my name is morgan freeman not the actor. >> i stand corrected. continue. >> basically it is a wall that we decided you could write what you wanted on. it all of the student groups -- wanted on it. all of the students were involved. it is free speech and you can write what you want. somebody wrote the president of the university's salary on the wall. we had a lot of inspiring quotes. we had a girl talk about how where boyfriend cheated on her. >> but then someone was up to no good. >> we expanded to the back of the wall. we covered the front. and somebody on the back somebody wrote in purple ink f-obama, right? there was f-this, f-that all over th
and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a lower number. >> this is brand new stuff. we have howard dean former vermont governor and candidate. and let's look at this for a second. what do you think? a $17,000 cap on tax deductions for everybody as a way of being fair because the upper end would pay more. what do you think? >> i don't have a problem with the eidea of deductions. here you are. you guys are talking about the private sector all the time. so, i've been convinced because of the high rate of canadian home ownership, i'm not convinced of doing away with charitable deductions. $17,000 ceiling for all tax deductions across the board. sure, steve. the upper end people
and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the g
in part, as best i can tell, because president obama gives a shout out to his chicago pastor at the time jeremiah wright. do either require as a first debate eve giant up-end the campaign surprise? joining us is steve smith. he's now an msnbc contributor. thank you for being here. big deal? >> probably not. it's old news. this is well-covered ground. and there's nothing in the speech that seems to me on the surface that's going to reset anything in the race. what it will do is create a conversation in conservative media about this event, the old tape here, as opposed to the expectations game that mitt romney is trying to control ahead of a really high-stakes debate. >> that's interesting. i don't mean to cast dispurgss on the journalist integrity, but i have noticed there have been a number of things that the ream campaign have wanted to inject into the campaign discussion that have been launched on the drudge report. so again, not casting dispurgss, but why do this the night before the debate? >> all of the discussion, all of the speculation in the political media is about how high the
came up with a plan to beat barack obama and one of the centerpieces of it was they would tell the country that obama had deceived americans by painting himself as a metrosexual black abe lincoln. the plan was junked. i have been baffled -- >> because it's a compliment. >> what does it mean? any idea? >> i have no idea even where to begin with that one but if someone called me a metrosexual white abraham lincoln i would be happy to take that one on. he was one of the best writers who ever occupied the white house. he was a man of principle, and he navigated very complex forces in society at that time. slavery, the fate of the union, the industrialization of the country, and all of that is the background in "the lincoln conspiracy," and he haunts the pages of the book in that regard. >> tim, quickly, totally different subject but you're also a business writer. what are you expecting from the big jobs number tomorrow? >> i don't even get into the crystal ball. i can't say that on this program, can i? >> no, you can't. >> a name joke. >> i'm sorry, that must happen a lot. i have n
know what allowed him to tell an absolute litany of lies? that was president obama. of course he said a lot of outrageous and untrue things. in the second paragraph of my column i said this line where he went after obama and said, you know, when i'm not telling -- when my boys aren't telling the truth to me, what obama was saying was accurate. in this case i think it's less -- i mean, it certainly is the right thing to point out that he was saying things that were not true. i don't understand why that's being left to the fact checkers, to you, to me, to others. why wasn't president obama out there getting in his face right then and there and saying it? that's why he was allowing this. he was just sort of taking the beating. of course he's going to get out there and say things that are false. why was he being allowed to say that? >> marina teresa, do you think there was a strategy behind the president's reluctance to be too assertive with mitt romney? as dana is suggesting? >> i think it's part of an overall strategy. he doesn't want to come in and get down in the weeds just yet and st
had about 14 of 15. and the obama folks were there, axelrod and cover, messina. they were not telling a good story. they were saying that this doesn't -- this is not definitive. basically it's theatrics. some of this and talking points you heard today. the question is, what it means long-term. clearly the president has set the bar, the expectation is pretty low for debate. lou: and one could be forgiven for thinking that it was, perhaps, i wrote a dope strategy. over a longer time than most people would have expected. but given that, the way in which the left has responded your, i mean, they have been vicious to their own, their leader. this is supposed to be the great one. and he is being treated today, i think by the left in many cases far worse than he has been treated by anyone on the right. >> you're right. ms in b.c., it was quite something to watch some of that coverage. and today congressman rangel said that the president just looked bored, like he did not want to be present. you have people out there saying that. it's obviously not helpful to the campaign. the president tried

this administration companies won't have to make layoffs they have to give notice. obama says don't tell anybody you are going to get laid off because of what's happening in our administration, but they go beyond that and say not only don't comply with the law but we will make the taxpayers pay your legal bills. that is outrageous. >> he is echoing the senate. they are sending layoff notices in an effort to pressure congress and the white house to take action against defense cuts. lockheed martin releasing a statement that in part concludes we remain firm in our conviction the automatic and across the board budget reductions are infective policy that will weaken and damage our national security and adversely impact our industry. lockheed has gone ahead with the plan not to release the layoff notices and says it will continue to work with government leaders to find a more thoughtful solution. if lawmakers fail to reach a deal the administration automatic spending cuts would go into effect in january 2013. >>> kelly, thank you. >> what do the employees think of all of this? >> on to the presidential r
him tell in that obama video. hey, i didn't save any tax money at all. >> right, no, of course. but also i think they believe that if they just told us, we would just say oh, okay. right? i mean there's something, we've talked about this before, that is very much of a ceo mentality that says i don't have to tell you that. you have to accept what i tell you as the truth where on the face of it it just doesn't sound right. because you want to say why did you put your money over there. we just know that can't possibly be true. but again, i think they expected that we'll deal with it for a few days, we'll have a few news cycles and it will go away because people will just believe us. i really think they thought that. >> david k. johnstone, do you have a tax return question you would like to suggest for tomorrow night. >> not that i suspect anyone would ask these, but i think the obvious ones will be will you show us any of these opinion letters that you have. i think the one i would really like to know is tell us how you made your huge for tune on the italian telephone directoies w

barack obama did with his fiscal stimulus. what they don't tell you is that much of what the president had to legislate for, we are already doing automatically. so let's not allow the caricature of what we are doing go unchallenged. if plan a really was as rigid and dogmatic as our critics claim, i'd be demanding a plan b, and getting danny and vince to design it. but it isn't. which is why you were right, earlier this week, to overwhelmingly reject the call for us to change our economic course. we have taken big and bold steps to support demand and boost growth. and we stand ready to do so again and again and again until self-sustaining growth returns. [applause] of course, arguments about economic theory are of no interest to the millions of people just struggling to get by right now. the home-help whose earnings barely cover the cost of childcare. the builder who knows the company will be laying people off, but doesn't yet know if he'll be one of them. the couple who want to buy their first home but can't raise the money for a deposit. to them and to all the other hard working famil
not true, obama needed to tell the people. i did not hear that. i am is still undecided. i would like to hear more of obama refuting, if he can, what romney is saying. i would like to hear more of mitt romney's plan that if obama is not telling the truth about your plans, we need to hear where his plans are going to take us and how he is going to actually make them work. host: that was virginia from florida. david is a mitt romney supporter in arlington, virginia. what did you think about the debate? caller: i am a reluctant romney supporter because of the abomination of the last four years. i am in arlington virginia and i have to tell other callers, they should come to arlington and see the ridiculousness that has become our central government across the river. there is a real estate bubble going on in arlington, va. that is sucking all of your tax dollars across the country. it is all flowing into washington, d.c., and creating a real estate boom here and mounds of jobs while the rest of the country suffers. when i go to my in-laws or my family members elsewhere in the country, it

in that now-famous senate race of long ago. what would you be telling barack obama if you were vising him about these upcoming debates? >> i would tell him first he has to understand that romney can win this debate if he's scripted, prepared, has really worked at it. if you watched him on "60 minutes" last sunday, he was smooth, he was clear, he was succinct. he was different than he has been. he has to be careful not to be spontaneous because when he is, he gets himself in trouble. i think they are on a search for zingers and one-liners because romney was cover-upped by kennedy. they have to be careful because the president could have a comeback. i think what you do in the debate preps you try to game out what the other side is going to say and then you try to see how you can respond. it's always strongest when it's a comeback. zenners don't work as a cute line. they work as part of the fabric of argument. in 1980, they knew jimmy carter was going to look at ronald reagan and say, "you were against medicare" at the beginning, happened to be true. but reagan looked at him, shook his head
